The Southern Crescent Soccer Foundation, Georgia Revolution, and Nexus FC Professional Youth Academy are collaborating to provide more soccer opportunities to players of all ages in the southern portion of Metro Atlanta. In doing so, the organizations hope to close the gaps between recreational play for youth, high-level select, and adult participation at all levels. The goal is to make all levels of play accessible to soccer players of all ages.
The SCSF is developing both recreational and school-based programming, along with coaching and referee development. Georgia Revolution has three teams, the senior team is active in the National Premier Soccer League while the Reserves and U23 teams play in the Atlanta District Amateur Soccer League. Nexus is an established and growing select program. Through collaboration, the organizations will provide high-level instruction, talent identification, and a proper player development pathway.
The goal is to create a model for soccer programming and serve to inspire other organizations to collaborate with like-minded colleagues for the betterment of the sport.
